Here’s What You Missed from the 2019 Future Cities Canada Summit

Cities are driving the future

Why It Matters

Community solutions are the key to solving some of the world’s toughest challenges. What role do cities play in this, and how can we leverage them as hubs of innovation? We partnered with Evergreen for the 2019 Future Cities Canada Summit to hear from urban leaders in Canada and beyond, translating key insights into compelling content that matters to the world of impact.

In a world facing growing global challenges, we must find sustainable and scalable community solutions to create lasting change. This change can’t be top down — people know what they need, and we must recognize cities as the driving force of the future.

On November 7 & 8, 2019, Future of Good partnered with Evergreen to be on-site at their Future Cities Canada Summit.

We explored the inseparable relationship between innovation and community solutions, and the many failures we must happily embrace to achieve this, from the government to the grassroots. We learned why we must intimately understand history if we want to enable inclusive placemaking, while experts discussed just who a city belongs to. Looking to the next decade, leaders described what sustainable futures look like — and exactly how to get there.
